Fridays at Home

-Have your child retell Over in the Ocean. This might be a bit difficult for them since it's a rhyming book and doesn't have a story line. There are 10 sea animals in the book-see how many they can remember and have them draw a picture of their favorite!
-Practice writing the letters c and o (plane line round letters); ask if the letters are vowels or consonants
-Practice all trick words
-Go on a scavenger hunt around the house or yard; look for rectangles and circles!
-Enjoy reading together!

A Peek in Our Week

We had a great time learning the 5 oceans and just scratching the surface of the ocean habitat. It was a short but full ocean week of art, music, water, sand, puzzles, and games! On a scavenger hunt we found some sea creatures that did not belong in the garden!
In assembly we learned about redemption, being bought back. It is amazing that the One who created "the heaven the earth and the sea and everything in them" (Acts 4:24) also made a way for us to be redeemed!

Here's What's Coming Up This Week

Language Arts-Continue working on letter sounds, introduce the letters a & g, review vowels/consonants, practice all trick words, continue to practice pencil grips, beginning sounds, sky writing, letter formation, basic sentence structure, and syllables

Saxon Math-Sort and graph items, order numbers, find missing numbers, name a shape piece using 3 attributes, play bingo (1-10), learn to do dot-to-dots, practice writing numbers 1-3

Bible-Our memory verse for this week is Ephesians 2:8 (Ephesians 2:4-9 through the end of September-see list in folder). We will read about Noah and the second beginning.

Around the World-We're off to the desert habitat with our book of the week, The Three Little Javelinas. Mrs. Rosser will lead us in all kinds of desert fun!

Reminders- We don't have a turn-in date yet, but please be saving your Box Tops for Education box tops.

Overheard in class-I asked, "What is a habitat?" Student: "It's when you do something bad." On our way to lunch, one student to another: "Do you want to get married wif me?!"
